In Topic: Maytag refrigerator/freezer MFD2561HES 115 degrees

Brian,  That is genius!  My wife just took the picture when she called me.  I wasn't at home.  When I got home, it was back down to 41.  There is a door alarm, but I bet you are correct.  Either one door was left open or somehow the switch didn't turn off the light.  I've been racking my brain as to how it could get that hot??  The light bulb is the only answer!  Thanks for the insight.

In Topic: GE Washer gtwn4950l0ws not enough water

Thanks Eric.  Good explanation.  I agree with your hate for these water saving washers.  Many times, after the wash cycle is complete, the clothes on the top 1/3 are completely dry...  Olyteddy's answer helps in understanding you should not interrupt the fill cycle to add extra clothes, or for any reason.  Maybe it rocks back and forth during the fill to allow for better adsorption of the water by the clothes to try and get the loading more accurate?  The old way of choosing your load is far superior.

I'll get the tech sheet.  I really just want to understand how the auto load sensing works???  Close the lid, the washer rocks the clothes back and forth.  Ok...  But, how does it sense the proper amount of water.  When I fill it with clothes, how does it know to give me a full load of water vs a small load of water?  What triggers this?  Thanks again.

I just want to follow up on this post for anyone reading it in the future.  The "note" on the temperature control in the refrigerator states to wait 24 hours between adjustments.  What I have learned from this is "Don't guess" on the temperature.  To get this to function properly, I first began adjusting the slider for the air going into the freezer to get the freezer stable at zero, using an accurate thermometer.  That took several days of small adjustments every 24 hours.  Once the freezer was stable, then I worked on the refrigerator in small increments over the next few days to get it stable at 40 degrees.  I've never had a unit as temperamental as this one.  Now what I have it adjusted properly, it's running perfectly.  Who would of known...  Thanks for everyone's input.
